Welcome to Second Grade!

         This year your child will move from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.”  It is our hope that your child develops a love for reading and learning through many different types of literature.  Guided Reading will provide your child reading instruction on his/her instructional level while building comprehension, as well as higher-level thinking skills.  Writer’s Workshop focuses on building students’ interest and ability to follow the steps of the writing process and explicit use of writer's craft.  It is a time for creativity and expression.  Our Math program, ENvisions, is built to help all students be successful in math.  It uses models, animations, and interactive learning to emphasize math concepts.  Science and Social Studies touch a variety of topics and are sometimes taught together to make cross-curricular connections.


       We look forward to working with your child!
